Tekran has provided more ambient and CEM systems than any other supplier worldwide.

About Us

Foundations

Tekran was founded in Toronto, Canada in 1989 to develop custom analytical instrumentation for environmental analysis. Our first analyzer, the Tekran 2537, was introduced in 1993 and is now widely accepted as the gold standard for automated ambient air analysis of mercury. Tekran continues to expand and improve our product lines, which are focused exclusively on instruments and systems for mercury measurement. We now offer systems for ambient air mercury speciation monitoring, automated analysis of total mercury and methyl mercury in environmental samples, total mercury in natural gas, and mercury continuous emission monitoring of coal-fired power plants and other industrial emission sources. We also offer a wide range of secondary equipment to support our main product lines.

Who We Are

Tekran Instruments Corporation is the world’s leading manufacturer of advanced systems for ambient air, laboratory analysis, and point-source mercury monitoring. With pioneering expertise in cold vapor atomic fluorescence detection, Tekran has become the trusted source for accurately and reliably measuring ultra-trace levels of mercury. Tekran has provided more automated air analyzers and Hg-CEM monitoring systems than any other supplier worldwide.

What We Do

Tekran is an international leader in environmental measurement technology, serving the needs of industry, government and research institutions with applications ranging from pure research to primary manufacturing. We revolutionized continuous mercury monitoring through the use of cold vapor atomic fluorescence spectrophotometry and pure gold preconcentration. Tekran’s systems for ultra-trace measurement of mercury in ambient air, stack emissions and environmental samples are extraordinarily sensitive and robust with detection limits of less than 1 picogram absolute and practical immunity to interfering compounds.

Leadership

Tekran is known worldwide for the accuracy and dependability of our equipment and will continue to exceed customer expectations. From developing the industry’s first proven ambient air analyzer and mercury Hg-CEMs, Tekran has been at the forefront of the mercury measurement industry since 1992. For example, the Tekran 3310 Elemental Mercury Calibration Source was chosen by the US National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) as the “NIST Prime” which is used to certify all other Hg-CEM calibration sources.
Tekran’s research and development efforts continue to be headed by cofounders Frank Schaedlich and Dan Schneeberger. Our unique solutions and industry leading designs have been awarded numerous patents. With our growing staff of research engineers and technicians, the Tekran team leads the way with employee commitment to innovation, quality and customer service. As we pursue future opportunities, we know Tekran has the people, technology and resources to measure up to your standards and ours.

FEATURED PRODUCTS

Tekran - Model 2750 - Methyl Mercury Distillation System

Tekran Instrument Corporation introduces the new Tekran Model 2750 Methyl Mercury Distillation System. The Tekran 2750 is designed to be compact and modular, reducing the required bench top footprint and scaling to your particular sample throughput. The system features a precision controlled aluminum heating block, and actively cooled water bath, accommodating simultaneous distillation of up to 30 samples. The Tekran 2750 is the perfect solution to ...

Tekran - Model 1306 - Water Filtration System

The Tekran Model 1306 Water Filtration System is an inexpensive, convenient source of deionized, mercury free water for the Series 3300 Mercury CEM. The system has two stages of pre-filtration to eliminate all particulate and organic contamination in the water. A reverse osmosis (R/O) unit then removes the bulk of ionic material. Two stages of finishing ion exchange (IX) resin filters then remove any remaining ionic compounds, including mercury. The ...

FEATURED APPLICATIONS

Mercury monitoring for isotopic abundance by the ICP-MS

Studies of real-world ecosystems are very complex. Mercury species inter-conversion as well as mercury deposition and evasion are constantly occurring. One technique to help sort out the processes is to trace reactions using natural Hg isotopes. Either by enriching a system with a particular isotope or determination of isotopic ratios as a technique of source identification, isotopes are a powerful tool for investigation. The Tekran 2600 Total Mercury and Tekran 2700 Methyl Mercury systems are designed to couple...

Mercury monitoring for aircraft research measurement

An examination of the literature shows that the Tekran 2537 is the choice for measurements of mercury aboard research aircraft. Several research groups in Europe and North America have used the Tekran 2537 on an aircraft platform for point source plume studies, free troposphere speciation characterization, vertical profiles, characterizing emission source regions and even the stratosphere (http://www.caribic-atmospheric.com/instrum/hg.html). Normally, the Tekran 2537 requires simple modifications for aircraft...
